First Rose Rose Shop Haul

I was deciding to change my skincare products as effects of the current skincare that I am using (The Face Shop's green tea serum and lotion) is still does good job on my skin in terms of moisturizing but other promising outcome such as whitening is not doing well. Previously when I first used the serum, the results showed in about 2 weeks in terms of whitening the post-acne mark. But now, it does not do much of the task anymore.

Before I have used The Face Shop's clean face line, The Body Shop's tea tree line and Etude House's AC Clinic Line to clear up pimples. Out of three, Etude House AC Clinic Line won my heart and my skin. It decreases my pimples drastically. I do not break out much as for now, but the aftermath of pimples on my face is despairing. So I contempt to look for a product that not just ease up the pimples, but also clearing the acne scars, whitens and moisturizes the skin and also delivering proper nourishment required for my skin type.

After days of research, I am deciding to use a type of skincare which I have never used before, skincare that contains snail's factors!!!! I have read that it is good to ease scarring, and other qualities that I've been searching for. The brand line-up that I have been considering are, Mizon, Benton and Secret Key. All are Korean skincare brands.

I was having a hard time to decide which Brand to try out because most reviews I have read are positive and handed over excellent results to applicant's faces. In terms of pricing, all are affordable and prices are not insane! Here is how I filtered which brand to buy.

Secret Key
After finding out that Secret Key's Snail Line contains pork placenta, I immediately went, "NO WAY I AM GOING TO USE THIS". Thank God I researched in-depth regarding this!

Benton & Mizon
It was a hard decision to choose between these two. I have tried a sample of Benton snail essence before and it works wonders on my skin in terms of moisturizing. My skin appears softer than usual. After contemplating, Mizon is more price-wise than Benton. However, there is not much difference between both price range. I finally set to give Mizon a try first.

After placing my orders at, a few days later, the website renovated into a new perspective with better user interface. You can experience old & new version of the website. Just check it out on the homepage of the website. But the old ver. can only be used to track old transactions, placing an order cannot be done there anymore. I used to make Korean skincare products order from Jolse but after its renovation somewhere in 2013 (I think), they don't have an option to check out using Singapore Dollars. The only option is US Dollars, which has a high exchange rate to my country's currency. Fun fact: was previously RubyRuby something on eBay. They have grown bigger after handling their Business on eBay and have an online site of their own. Congratulations!

After approximately 3 weeks of waiting, my parcel finally arrives!!!! I checked out by selecting "K-Packet" option. It is new to me as I have never seen it at checkouts before. I have read that the shipment method is faster than standard shipping but there is no difference between those two upon reaching to my location. I was saddened by my previous shipment service from Korea(somewhere in mid 2013) which took 2 months for my parcels to arrive -_____- I get disappointed and it took awhile for me to open my heart to purchase products online from Korea again, haha.

The products that I purchased from are;
1. Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule 30ml (cheers to my first ampoule ever) US10.77
2. Mizon All In One Snail Repair Cream (Multi-Function Formula) 35ml US5.48
3. Mizon Snail Recovery Cream 45ml US4.34
4. A'PIEU Banana Hand Cream US0.93 (after voucher discount)
Total: US21.52 + shipping US5.19 = US26.62
They were having a mad sales at that time that is why the prices are insanely cheap.

Thank you, mom for retrieving my parcel at the local PO. ^^

My Mizon babies. I have not opened it yet, it is still sealed.


Free samples. If you want more samples in one purchase, go order from Jolse l o l
The samples are;
#1 It's Skin Prestige D'Escargot Finale (I am not sure what this is)
#2 It's Skin Bebe Wash D'Escargot. The graphic is super cute!
#3 Missha Real Complete BB Cream
#4 Missha Super Aqua Detox Peeling Gel. (Oh, how I love peeling gels! Can't wait to test this out. Peelings are gooooood, it makes your skin cleaner)
#5 A'Pieu Deep Cleansing Oil Foam. My first impression of the A'Pieu brand is APink. Haha.

Please look forward to my future updates~
